It's the day after Valentine's Day, and you're sitting at home wondering, "What's next?"
Maybe you chose not to partake in V-Day for your own personal reasons, didn’t have a Valentine (no biggie!) or felt like the popular designated day of love was too capitalistic for your liking (FYI, more than $18.2 billion was spent on gifts in 2017 alone). So, now that the hoopla’s over, why not take advantage of the calm after the storm — adoringly known as Singles Awareness Day?
To help you out, we’ve put together six items you can buy to “treat yo’ self” on the day that is designated to being all about you!
Shop: "Single, Not Sorry" Tinder Homesick Candle, $29.95
The folks at Homesick came up with the clever idea to reclaim single pride through the company’s main export — candles! The one-of-a-kind theme for this particular product makes it perfect for the occasion, though — especially for Tinder users. Titled “Single, Not Sorry,” the candle is described to smell “like freedom and fun” — two things that you should certainly celebrate this National Singles Awareness Day!
Shop: Pine and River Ultra Plush Weighted Blanket, $54.99
So, it’s Saturday morning and you’re just not ready to get out of bed yet. Totally makes sense! So why not cuddle up in bed for a little while longer with this Pine and River Ultra Plush Weighted Blanket?
Perfect for both the winter season and those solo cuddle sessions, this blanket comes in four weight options — 5, 7, 15 and 20 pounds — and four color options — blue, gray, starry night and banana dance (yes, you read that correctly). Start your day by lighting your Tinder candle and luxuriating with a gentle embrace from your weighted blanket.
Shop: Venus Et Fleur Lè Mini (Square), $79.00
When you’re done getting those last few minutes of relaxation in and decide to migrate to another room, why not be greeted by a luxe set of nine mini roses from Venus Et Fleur’s Lè Mini collection? Made from real roses that last a year, these gorgeous arrangements require very little care, as the only requirement is that they must be kept in a room-temperature environment, away from direct exposure to sunlight — no watering necessary! Just admire them and know that you deserve these!
Shop: Monogrammed/Personalized Canvas Duffel Bag, $99.99
Your day of luxuriating has only just begun. You’ve taken your time in getting up and now it’s time to get the day started. Maybe you have somewhere to be — a spa day, perhaps? Wherever your next adventure takes you, chances are you need some kind of vessel to transport your belongings, so why not make a statement?
Personalization Mall’s Luxurious Weekender Embroidered Canvas Duffel is the perfect way to get yourself noticed without being arrogant. Upon placing your order, you can request that any name or monogram of your choice be embroidered on the bag in nine font options. The bag itself also comes in three colors and is made of 100 percent heavy cotton canvas with navy and leather accents. The luxury!
Shop: Self Love Rose Quartz Eye Mask, $140
Let’s say you’re spending Singles Awareness Day at the spa, and you’re about to lie back for your massage. To make the most of your self-care experience, you need an eye mask that also fits the theme in both fashion and function.
The limited-edition Self Love Rose Quartz Eye Mask from Revolve was designed by celebrity facialist Angela Caglia and is the first of its kind. In addition to being aesthetically stunning, the mask is said to improve blood circulation, reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness, encourage cell metabolism, help the skin release toxins, soothe and relax facial muscles and tons more. Described as the “Best splurge of 2019” by one five-star reviewer, this appears to be the investment that keeps on giving.
Shop: Restaurant.com Gift Card, $25 for $10, $50 for $20, $100 for $40
You’ve gotten your spa on and now it’s time to eat! Prepare in advance for the moment with a Restaurant.com card that’s available in three gifting quantities. Redeemable at thousands of restaurants across the country, this is perfect to use no matter where you are, and it ensures that you don’t pay full-price when you’re ready to indulge in that four or five-star restaurant that you’ve been dying to try, solo.
Wrap up Singles Awareness Day with a sigh of satisfaction and what better way to guarantee that happens than with some good food?
